I love meeting readers. Even if you don’t read the kind of books I write, I still want to meet you. To chat for a moment, share our love of great stories, the way books make us feel, the joy of starting a new tale, the mix of bliss and loss when we finish one.
We have at least three major rock and roll birthdays to celebrate this week, too: Johnny Cash, Fats Domino, and George Harrison. Mention any of these amazing musicians to me, and I’ll give you the gift of a notebook to write your own story (or music) in.
Books and music make life worth living. Meeting other humans who love them too, that’s a recipe for a joyful Saturday.
